Slide Alignment

I am a new 2019 Isata 3 FW owner. Picked it up from North Trail RV in Fort Myers, FL in February.
The slide seems to be a little out of alignment. When the slide is retracted the top is tight but the bottom is not. When I measure from the side of the RV to the edge of the slide, the top is a quarter inch out, the bottom is three quarters of an inch out. Is this normal or does it need to be adjusted?

Will there slide come in more? Mine contacts first at the top and then pivots down pulling the bottom in so it's even top to bottom.

No. I just tried again. It won't come in more.

My Forester has always done this. I comes in then tilts down. No leaks or anything.

AbdRahim, are you saying the bottom being further out is normal. Or are you saying the bottom should pull in after the top is in?

I have a 5th wheel toy hauler and my slides are not perfect either when closed similar to yours... from what I see on other trailers 1/4 to 3/4 inch is not unusual at all. These mass produced by staple gun machines are far from Lexus or Mercedes fit and finish quality to say the least....and while the small differential bugs us perfectionists, there should be nothing to worry about.

It looks like it may be designed that way.
